Fall Herbal Centerpiece
As I was reading the first project, I was dreaming of having such a big kitchen and a wonderfully huge island that could allow such an enormous bouquet!
But dreams are dreams and I kept reading.
There were such fun Halloween ideas! But some years I get around to decorating and some years I don’t. This was one of those “don’t” years. Although I thought the spell book was awesome and pinned it for future “do” years.
I kept thinking about that bouquet.
And I decided that on a smaller scale, I could do something similar.
So after work, I grabbed some scissors, and a vase and hurried outside before it got dark.
I filled the vase with rainwater.
Using several long pieces of rosemary, I created a backdrop for my bouquet.
I then added some purple basil for color, lime basil seed stalks for interest, dill flowers for contrast, and fennel fronds for texture.
Then I realized that a few eucalyptus stems as filler would complete the arrangement.
It doesn’t photograph well, but I am so pleased with how it turned out and the aroma is divine!
